The bed linen and the bathrooms were also clean. All the rooms had LCD tvs. On the second night of our stay, the...

The room was large, the bed comfortable, the bathroom not very modern. We took an additional bed. The hotel had two rows of rooms. Sea facing and garden...

The hotel is ran by an Anglo Indian Lady. Both the proprietor and the staffs are very friendly. Rooms are spacious. Had a great weekend. Though the hotel serves food, but we choose to have it from outside restaurants.

I came back to this place after 20 long years. I liked her awesomeness. This time with my wife and son. I really got through my old photograps and requested my travel agent to get this motel. The roms are spacious but food is highly priced. But overall a good place to stay with family.

We returned to Mermaid after a gap of a few years. Two things had changed. Mrs Dutt, the proprietress was not there. And the contingent of boys who were earlier there to run errands with a smile were missing. As a result of the last, getting breakfast in from outside to supplement the limited offerings of Mermaid's own kitchen was...

When you arrive at the Mermaid Hotel you can tell that the staff are trying to please. The rooms are spacious and clean, with fans and hot water. The hotel is well located on the main promenade in easy walk of the beach and fishing boats. We only had breakfast at the hotel, they served rancid butter and mouldy toast!...

It is sad that Mrs. Dutt is now old and weak. I remember staying there years ago. She would personally supervise the kitchen and is a great conversationalist. Long back I remember walking her dogs for a walk on the beach. My last stay was a disappointment, this great hotel is falling to sees. Mrs. Dutt should take on some...
